To view this blog all you need to do is click "continue" and arrow down. Then click on each separate entry to read the blog. You may also click on "show all pictures" or "show all entries."  I will write entries frequently. Last year I wrote one every day, however, this time I plan to spend more time dancing! How could that be?

Tango in the Minneapolis area is fabulous but there is something very special about the tango in Buenos Aires. The milongueros (definition below) are incredibly passionate as they dance. Dancing tango feels like nothing else. When I dance I don't have a care or worry--only passion and peace. It has changed my life forever!

Below are some pictures from my friends in the tango community in the Minneapolis area.

Enjoy!

Besos,

Milonguero - a person whose life revolves around dancing tango and the philosophy of tango.
A title given by other tango dancers to a man (woman) who has mastered the tango dance and embodies the essence of tango.

'Milonguero' also infers the following concepts: 1)someone who dances tango socially in the milongas (tango dances), rather than focusing on 'show' tango; 2) someone who understands the importance of listening to the music in his/her dancing, and who values this musicality over the desire to do fancy steps; 3) someone who dances in 'close embrace,' in which the torsos of man and woman not only touch, but serve as a primary means of communicating with each other in leading and following the dance.
